Hello, sunshine! Simply breathe-taking fall day. Cold front that brought clouds and a few showers overnight has pushed well to the southeast, and high pressure takes over — clouds have cleared nicely and the radar is headache-free.
Temperatures are back to average today. Middle to upper 50s along the Cumberland Plateau and lower 60s for everyone else (average is 63 for early November). If you plan on heading out this evening, you’ll need to grab a warm jacket. Low 50s are expected by 7 PM and that is not the coolest. Clear skies combine with middle and upper 30s alongside calm winds leading to the development of patchy frost overnight.
A FROST ADVISORY has expanded to include all of southern Kentucky and most of Middle Tennessee — in effect 2 AM though 8 AM on Friday. Widespread frost will lead to damaged sensitive vegetation if left uncovered. Please do that!
Nashville currently sits at a 5.88″ deficit in rainfall for the year and 1.10″ deficit for the month. We need the rain, bad! Not a whole lot to help the situation in our 7-Day forecast. First chance for a few spotty showers arrive on Tuesday of next week.
Besides that, expect high temperatures in the low to upper 60s and overnight lows in the upper 30s to upper 40s.
Meteorologist Dan Thomas has the full breakdown on the expected frost coming up on Channel 4 at 4 and 4:30. Be sure to join Chief Meteorologist Lisa Spencer for updates at 5, 6 and 10 tonight!
